Aileron is a good example of a green field project that is sensitive to the surroundings with native plantings, road side drainage gravel and sweeping mounds formed into the site.
The buildings are arranged in a U shape facing the sun with solar shading and a pond. The project's materials include polished native limestone. The parking lot has three electric charging stations. Overall, Aileron is one of the finest regional examples Green Cincinnati has toured of a commercial building demonstrating sustainable building practices in a new structure which reflects its sustainable goals and is unified in its siting, construction and the purpose of the campus which is a business think tank and management coaching non-profit. It even processes all of its black water on site.
